Good read. Very remeniscent of the DaVinci Code with an ultraconservative branch of the Catholic Church once again wreaking havoc.

Though there really are no similarities story-wise, the - attitude - for lack of a better word - the attitude of this book brings you to the same shady, conspiracy feeling of The DaVinci Code. I personally found the protagonist in The Genesis Code a much more likeable character. And his "lady-love" was surprising! I really love reading religious/conspiracy fiction; which is surprising because I'm a Born Again believer. And this one is right up there with the best of them! Very well written mystery making you work to figure out - not WHO done it, but WHY done it!

If you liked The DaVinci Code, I swear you will like this one a lot better. No time wasted with a romance subplot, just a great religious mystery.

This was my first book by the author (actually 2 authors writing as one). I really liked the book from the beginning. It grabbed my attention from the beginning and held my interest throughout. I plan to read more from this author. If you like a good mystery, with lots of twists and turns, this is the book for you!

Mr. Case has written a enthralling mystery. Watch out all conspiracy theorists! You will come away feeling even more concerned about Big Brother, be it government and/or religious. I'm passing it on for someone else to enjoy, but I will reread in the future.
Love it!
